Park Ideas Presented Today

May 3, 2012 Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Offer your ideas for a new park near the Wilson Bridge.

After a meeting yesterday to gather ideas from the public about design options for a new park near the Wilson Bridge, the nonprofit Rendezvous Lands Conservancy will present design ideas today that incorporate the input received from locals. Hal Hutchinson of the LOR Foundation, which helped secure the land for public use, explained the general blueprint for the 40-acre park which includes the Wilson boat launch.

“The basic concept for the park is for it to be a natural park with passive recreation opportunities and increased access to the Snake River and the designs will be based on that concept,” Hutchinson said.

A passive park means that the property will remain in its natural state with a focus on pedestrian activities such as jogging, walking and cross-country skiing. Features that would allow organized sports such as soccer or softball fields will not be included in the design. The workshop is tonight, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Center for the Arts. To offer your input online take a survey here.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
